Innovation in Urban Transport

Graz, Austria, 25 - 26 November 1998

A conference on innovation in urban transport will be held in Graz, Austria, on 25 and 26 November 1998. The event is organised by the European Commission, DG VII, in cooperation with the Austrian Ministry of Transport, the Province of Styria and the City of Graz.

Discussions during the conference will focus on research results from EU-sponsored projects in the transport field. Issues such as mobility behaviour and management, new vehicle and propulsion concepts, innovative urban freight-traffic systems and solution-oriented telematics applications will also be discussed. Participants will be offered the opportunity to gain a closer insight into EU transport policy activities, as well as to discuss key themes within the EU's upcoming Fifth RTD Framework Programme.

An exhibition will be organised in parallel with the conference providing information on results of European research projects as well as on those planned for the future. One of the highlights of the conference will be a presentation, by Transport Commissioner Neil Kinnock, of the European Local Transport Information System (ELTIS), a project designed to provide facts and details on local and regional transport in Europe and support the transfer of knowledge and the exchange of experience in the field.

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided during the conference in German, French and English.
